RIM Working Group to Present Elements of a Modern Retention Schedule in CGOC Webinar

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2011) - CGOC, a practitioners' forum focused on records retention and preservation practices, today announced a new webinar, "Working Group Presentation on RIM (Records Information Management)," which will be presented on April 19, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. During the one-hour session, Lorrie Luellig, Of Counsel, Ryley Carlock & Applewhite and Harry Pugh, Former Executive Vice President, Operations & Technology Policy Coordinator, Citigroup, Inc., will present their work product to be published in a May 30th CGOC Advisory.

After taking a deep look at why most retention schedules aren't consistently executed, Lorrie and Harry led the RIM Working Group to evaluate the breaking points of "traditional" schedules and went on to define the elements of a modern schedule. The elements they included each met the criteria of being critical in enabling the schedule to be executable. Their presentation will include best practice examples from companies that have gotten it right and the benefits that brought.
